change authors john heilemann of new york magazine and mark halperin of "time." gentlemen, thank you for joining us. right now never has mitt romney's ability to shape shift more on display than yesterday. it involved health care reform. the issue he can't decide whether to run from or embrace, so he did both in the same day. in an interview with nbc's ron allen, romney said his health care plan up in massachusetts, the one that the obama plan is modeled after, shows his compassion. let's listen. >> throughout this campaign as well we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured, 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> well, shortly after that, very shortly, a matter of two hours or so, romney spoke before a toledo, ohio, crowd to denounce obama's affordable care act which is based on his massachusetts plan. let's listen. >> i will repeal obama care and replace it with real health care reform. obama

appoi appointed, john roberts reflect the modern republican party. mitt romney, to be sure, would nominate someone like cavanagh, a young judge on the d.c. circuit. very conservative. not moderate republicans. that's why one seat would make such a difference. >> and those two have very clear records as did john roberts and sam aledo. we knew exactly who they were and what they would do. the senate wasn't ready to really look at that record and make an issue. >> can i ask a theoretical question. there's two ways of thinking about this. there should be a deference to the executive in naming nominees that comport with the president's legal philosophy, ideolo ideology. applying confidence because they are qualified for the job and hey, this is politics and a woman's right to choose on the line, this is a war against all against all. do what it takes. which is your belief system? >> you have to be confident and have an exemplary record. we need a candidate, republican or democrat who will accept the progress that has been made and be willing to advance that progress. that, to me -- >>
to john kerry a few years ago. but romney's people should have been smart enough to know this was happening. there was no presumption of that. they didn't get out aahead of the story. they didn't define their candidate well. there's two parts to this election, chris. one, is romney said a lot of people are unhappy with obama and his leadership and the economy. we accept that. he never made the connection that i'm the answer and solution. that's where the disconnect happened. >> mitt romney has been doing a lot to -- we saw it starting at the conventions. make himself more acceptable and help people understand him better. he's doing these direct into the camera ads. let me play one of those for you. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle class. >> the president is doing the same thing, doing some of these direct to camera. when you see a million ads in a battleground states, do these stand out? how do yo
john elway. it was the only scheduled talk. it was a stealth bomber in the background there. romney tried to tamp down expectations in the back. >> people want to know who is going to win? who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make? in my view, it's not so much winning or losing or even the people themselves. it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> playing off the enthusiastic crowd. romney had lines for the base. may even tested out a few zingers we might hear wednesday night. >> this is a home to focus on the family which is committed to preserving the foundation of america. we have to get the pipe laine from canada if i have to build it myself. >> it will kill america's entrepreneurship. >> that's the first time, by the way, romney talked about card check on the stump since the primaries. others call it the employee free choice act. it was a priority four years ago. it never passed because a few democ

on the law until the election is over. our crime and justice correspondent joe johns has been following this one for us. so, joe, what happens? walk me through. come november 6th, if a voter doesn't have a photo i.d., then what? >> well, this is just pennsylvania, first of all, brooke. if you show up without an i.d., you will still be able to vote one way or the other. the question is about provisional ballots and whether those provisional ballots, if they're filled out, end up being counted in the state of pennsylvania. so a little bit complicated. but this is being seen as a victory for opponents of the law in pennsylvania, but only for this election. what the judge, judge robert simpson in pennsylvania said, is that for this election only he's blocking the voter i.d. law in pennsylvania, the reason he's doing that is because there is not enough time between now and november to get protections in place to assure that people won't lose their ability to vote. so the state's cutoff from implementing or enforcing the controversial parts of the i.d. law through november 6th, the general el
john mccain and barack obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa trm pa tray yous, they succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as a consequence, i thought that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date, 40 days out from the election in '08 and 40 days out from the election in '04. in '04 the campaign was consumed with the debate over at least one of our wars. 40 days out from the election in '08, in the midst of the financial meltdown the campaign was consumed with both of the wars. now it's 2012 and we're 40 days

in recent presidential elections. just ask john mccain who made his own last-ditch effort. >> there's just one day left until we take america in a new direction. we need to win in pennsylvania tomorrow. with your help we will win. >> reporter: now, it's unclear what kind of resources romney would put into pennsylvania when asked whether the campaign would buy any ads here, romney aide said that is for the romney campaign to know and for the obama campaign to worry about. but getting back to that phone call, wolf, between romney and prime minister netanyahu, mitt romney just briefed reporters on his campaign plane just about half an hour ago about that conversation. he said netanyahu did talk about that red line on where he would try to draw a line on iran's nuclear weapons program. and romney said he offered his own comments on the issue but wouldn't go into any greater detail than that. and also it's also interesting to note, wolf, romney was asked on the plane about any current assessments on how the president and how the white house is handling the diplomatic attacks in libya, the inves
on upon exit polls, they thought john kerry was going to be president. >> fox news apparently that night, they thought john kerry was going to win until the very end. >> and you have to remember the down ballot races matter a lot. >> congress and senate. >> then republicans are going, they need to redouble their efforts to retake the senate and that's looking dicesy. that's why president obama had active efforts in texas in 2008 because those down ballot races really matter for the future and for your leverage when you come into office. >> thanks to all three and please let us now whether you think the polls are actually reflecting the real numbers right now. >>> next, there are very conflicting stories about what happened that night in libya. it is now being called benghazi gate and police arrive at a gruesome murder scene and find a young television star dead in the driveway. >>> benjamin netanyahu drew a red line, literally, had the big, fat, wasn't a skinny little sharpie. it was a fat, red line. >>> our second story, the prime minister of israel literally drew a red line for iran's
journalist by the name of john king was with the associated press and i was complaining about something they weren't covering. he pointed out they had already covered it. he wrote the word news on his notepad, and covered up the s. it's a five-year-old speech, cnn covered it five years ago. maybe it's shocking. it turns out, i follow this more closely maybe than the right wing blogs, our president is african-american and he belonged to reverend wright's church in chicago. i just don't -- free political advice to the right? it's the economy, stupid. you're running against a president with 8% unemployment and 1.3% gdp growth. i can't imagine why you would talk about anything else, especially race, which this president i think has done a wonderful job of leading us on. >> eric, why a speech from 2007 being released now, tonight? is it anything other than politics or why do you think it's significant? >> well, i think there's an expression of frustration on the right, among a lot of people who feel like major members of the media have spent a lot of time vetting republicans in a way they ne
analyst, gloria borger and john king. john, the polls show increasing support for legalizing same sex marriage, particularly among younger voters. how important is that? >> it's a big question, because the issue is not as big as it was back in 2004 when george w. bush closed every speech at the end talking about his support for a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. he was trying to gin up conservative support. we can look at the polling data and there is no question, no question at all, public opinion has changed in recent years. this is our most recent cnn/orc poll. you see here a majority of americans, 54%, say marriage between gay or lesbian couples should be recognized as valid. so a majority of americans support same sex marriage. if you look at these numbers from gallup, you can see how public opinion has changed over time. yellow line is those who say it should not be valid. the green line is those who favor same sex marriage. you notice right here, sometime in late 2010, 2011, those lines crossed to where you have even in the gallup numbers now, a majority sayi
's not the automakers bringing it to the golden state. john ford is at google headquarters with the story. >> reporter: google and self-driving cars, california's governor about to sign a bill that moves those really close to being a reality for everybody else here in california. he's going to arrive here in just about 20 minutes. now, last year nevada signed a similar law that allowed self-driving cars on the road. that just went into effect this year. california is the big deal here because there are more than 30 million licensed vehicles on the road in california, making it the biggest state for cars by far. last month california -- sorry, google announced that more than 480,000 miles had been driven in the self-driving, driverless cars without an accident. that's a pretty big deal. they're hoping that this technology will spread. one thing to note, google uses these cars to collect map data, which is one advantage they've got over apple going forward in the maps mess. back to you. >> so how does it work, john? you just program where you're going and just plug in and -- i mean -- >> enjoy the ride?
, the great thing about president obama and the debates with john mccain, it really wasn't so much what he said. it was the way he held himself compared with the way that senator john mccain held himself, and senator mccain looked increasingly flustered. he looked frustrated with candidate obama. i think that the great thing about president obama is that he does have the capacity to be totally in the moment and to be totally funny. he is funny on his feet. and so, you know, for him to practice what he's going to do in case of a zinger, i think he's got the blessing of being rather spontaneous and the blessing of being up against someone who is incapable of spontaneity, reveals himself in those spontaneous moments like the 47% taped remark to be not a terribly likable person. so i think for the president to practice the way he handles zingers defeats what the president is particularly good at. >> well, actually barack means -- barack means in swahili blessed one, so you got that one right. will president obama challenge romney on the details of his vague tax plan, a tax plan almost every ex
